Legal Assistance Is Available If Elmiron Damaged Your Eyesight

Drugs created to improve your health should not impair your quality of life. Medical studies have found that Elmiron may be at fault for destroying the eyesight of those who use the medication.

Elmiron, for which there is no generic alternative, has been prescribed for decades to manage bladder pain caused by interstitial cystitis (IC). Unfortunately, recent studies have found that a significant number of patients who take the drug suffered retinal damage. Your retina is what provides you with clear vision. If it is injured or diseased, you may no longer be able to see.

At the Cleveland, Ohio, law firm of Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, our experienced lawyers help victims from across the nation recover financial losses after using dangerous drugs.

What Visions Problems Does Elmiron Cause?

Symptoms caused by Elmiron could include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Dark spots in the center of vision
  • Difficulty adapting to dim lights
  • Muted colors
  • Reading problems
  • Straight lines that seem to be curved

Retinal problems believed to be caused by Elmiron share characteristics with other conditions that cause retinal damage, including age-related macular degeneration. If you are losing your eyesight and took Elmiron, your vision problems may be related to the use of this drug.

What Should You Do If You Took Elmiron?

Contact your doctor immediately if you take Elmiron. Medical evidence shows that vision damage caused by Elmiron may be controlled by early detection and close monitoring. However, taking the drug for years may cause permanent vision loss.

If you or a family member suffers vision problems from using Elmiron, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Contact our Elmiron lawsuit attorneys today to find out if you have a claim.
